    Billboard reports that a New York City law firm is suing Prince for more than $700,000 in legal fees for services that included helping to settle financial obligations with his former wife.

    Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler said in a lawsuit filed Tuesday the musician failed to pay their firm for handling cases in Ireland, California and New York. The law firm also says it wasn't paid for representing him in his divorce. It says he has paid $125,000. Wow, so Prince was billed nearly $1 million for marital legal fees? Shit, that's a lot. Marriage is a bitch.

    What do you think of Prince possibly stiffing his legal team on fees?
